    December 25, 2019 - Garnet with purple hue without orange reflexes. Scents of smoke, black and blueberries, black cherries and incense. On the palate with considerable tannic backbone, but not lacking harmony. Still quite young. Decant is a good idea. Long fruity finish. From a textbook cellar this should shed some more of its tannins in a decade or so, though it is ready for drinking now at least for my palate. 5/12/17/9. -2029+

    December 16, 2019 - Decanted for several hours. Still a bit too much oak for me. Structured, solid...more time?

    December 1, 2019 - Very dark red/purple color. Drank a glass on day two. Fairly prototypical, cassis, earth, tobacco, crushed rocks, oak, a little black olive, full bodied, modest floral notes, medium length. Very consistent.

    November 16, 2019 - Definition of elegance here. Right in a perfect spot, no rough edges. Violets, cherry, some tar, and just a hint of mint and forest floor. This will not get better, so drink in the next 2-3 years

    November 4, 2019 - Since this is known for its new oak on release I opted to give this a 3 hour decant and it paid off. I also, got rid of some sediment and then back into the btl for convenience. I'm also sure 15yrs of btl age has really helped too. Said to be a blend of 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon & 5% Petit Verdot. Killer big nose dominated by intriguing cigar box. The cigar box carries over to a suave and yet lifted palate where you also pick up dark fruit, mineral, tobacco leaf, and dark chocolate. To be honest, I had low expectations for this but ended up really digging it. This is drinking great with the decant. I also always start drinking my reds in the mid-high 50s. Hate red warm reds!

    (Château Lascombes) Opaque dark red violet color; deep cassis, with a touch of roasted fruit and nice touch of herbs on nose; tight, drying tannins, tart cassis and mineral palate with a touch of iron; medium-plus finish

    (Chateau Lascombes Margaux) Now here is an intriguing, thought-provoking, perhaps just confusing wine. Previously highly rated, today the wine does not show so well at all to my palate. On the nose it seems gorgeous, huge fruit character with beautifully interwoven spicy, cedary, coffee notes, some of which are oak-derived I am sure, but nevertheless the bouquet is on the whole captivating. The palate has a very full and fleshy start which is not at all unexpected, with a huge, fat, creamy weight, backed up by a rather extracted, inky bite. The acidity seems rather lost here, and the overall impression is of a rather soft, blowsy and jammy style which lacks definition and vigour. It certainly has opulence, but that isn't everything in a wine. It is difficult to reconcile my experience and score here with my previous opinion, and this is patently a wine that needs reassessment in the future. A retaste on the day did nothing to change my opinion. I have added a huge note of caution to my score.

    (Chateau Lascombes Margaux) A great nose, very expressive, deep fruit with oak too, but it still carries that typical Margaux perfume. There is great appeal on the palate too; classic structure, but with a lovely velvety quality to the tannins, smothered in a blanket of fruit and texture. This can't be criticised for lack of typicité, it fits in very well here. The efforts at Lascombes in recent years have really paid off.
